A little feature about us in Bishopston Voice!

The lovely people at Bishopston Voice have written a fantastic article about our shop and we're chuffed to bits! The article appeared in their August issue, which was full of fantastic news about the local community.

We're so chuffed it's been cut out and stuck in the window :)

Thanks again to Bishopston Voice for writing such lovely things about our new business - we're so pleased you liked it!

For more information about Bishopston Voice, take a look at their website www.bishopstonvoice.co.uk

Our Medieval Peasant costume on BBC's Countryfile

Recently we had a call from the BBC needing a Medieval Peasant costume for Presenter John Craven to wear for one of their episodes of Countryfile. Obviously we were very happy to help!

The episode was aired on Sunday 4th August 2013,  and a short clip can be viewed below.



We did notice when we watched it on Sunday that he'd put on the waistcoat inside out! Not sure why, perhaps they did it on purpose, but it made us chuckle a little anyway :)

Check out our Medieval Costumes for hire in Bristol to see this costume and more!
